All,

I've been toying with the idea for a while, and I think I'm ready to make it happen and see where it goes. We do have some really good posters here that do provide some pretty good insight on Tulane athletics. That being said, I'd like to start with 1-2 articles/posts per week at first, then possibly more if/when the interest and content lend itself.

The types of articles I'd like to include are, but not limited to:

Game Reports
Practice Reports
Recruiting
Tulane Events
Historical Throwbacks
Constructive Editorial / Opinion Pieces
Etc

The list can grow, but you get the general idea. Posts:

- Should be of a certain length (words) to be determined
- Can include images
- Will be reviewed for content/approval. Basically, the bashing, anything goes mentality stays on the board. I really want these to be well-written and publication worthy.

To those who are interested in being selected and contributing as an author, please respond to this post or private message me your interest.

Thank you,
- goTULA.NEt

I've had one person express interest... honestly thought we'd have at least a few more. Hopefully with more professional and shareable content, we can grow both sides of goTULA.NEt. And if you ever want to contribute, please let me know.

Personally if I had more time I’d commit. I already spend too much of my life on Tulane stuff. ;)

Its been less than 24 hours, not everyone checks the board as frequently as the die hards. I am always in favor of more Tulane content !

you could probably get some internship writers from the university that are looking to get something on the resume. Just a thought. Pass out flyers or put up at the english dept etc.

And the younger folks seem to be far more into the tweeting and blogging world. I’ve never blogged or tweeted once. I probably couldn’t even if i had something to blog.

To those interested,I haven't forgotten about this. It's still on the radar with plans to have the blog up and running by end of Summer, before football kickoff. I've had a couple of personal projects take some priority lately. But as for the blog, stay tuned. And if any of you expressed interest in contributing, start organizing those ideas.

I'm definitely thinking WinWave's Fall practice / camp report will be one of the first :mrgreen:

I'm hoping to launch the blog by the end of this week. For all who have messaged me and expressed interest, I'm ready for any content submissions you may have.

Please private message or email me any content / future posts you may have. To add you as a author, I'll need the following from you:

username
first name
last name
email

It's ok if you don't want to use your real name, but you'll still have to tell me what you would like to be called. Your first and last names will be the only info tagged and publicly visible on your blog.
